Nigel Farage whips up hardline Eurosceptics as he declares ‘we are lions being led by donkeys’

Nigel Farage whipped up hardline Eurosceptics into a frenzy today as he vowed his new Brexit Party would cause an earthquake among ‘the career political class’. 

The arch-Leaver told a packed auditorium in Birmingham at the party’s first rally that ‘we are lions being led by donkeys’ as he tried to galvanise his supporters before expected European Parliament contests next month.

And the former Ukip leader, who has since turned his back on the party for ‘lacking good people’, tore into the government for its handling of Britain’s departure and also prominent Remainers for refusing to honour the referendum result.

He said: ‘I find myself standing here today in my sixth European election campaign.

‘I shouldn’t be here, you shouldn’t be here, this shouldn’t be happening, we should have left the European Union.

‘But I’m damned if after 25 years I’m going to roll over and let these politicians do this to us!

‘So let’s fight back! Let’s fight back! We won’t stand for it! We won’t stand for it!’

He also hit back at claims that Brexit has divided the nation and instead blamed fractures on the ‘political class’ who he claims are ignoring the 2016 vote.

To a chorus of deafening boos which Mr Farage said he ‘enjoyed’, he directly accused former deputy prime minister Sir Nick Clegg and ex-prime minister Tony Blair of refusing to respect the Leave result.

The Member of the European Parliament, who was introduced by grassroots campaign group Leave Means Leave’s boss Richard Tice, said that the upcoming elections were ‘just the beginning’ as he declared war on the ‘establishment’ and a supposed broken political system. 

He said: ‘Fundamental change, taking on and beating the establishment are not things that happen because decent people nod their head and say “I agree with that”.

‘Fundamental change in society, the re-balancing that we need between people and the politicians will only come if people like you… determine that you will do something about it. And so I ask you, are you with us!’

He also promised that the Brexit Party would contest general elections and by-elections. 

Mr Farage’s explosive intervention comes a day after Jacob Rees-Mogg’s sister Annunziata, was the party’s first star MEP candidate – after she quit the Tories after 35 years.

European Parliament elections are likely to happen in the UK on May 23 after Theresa May secured an extension to Britain’s departure deadline until October 31. 

Mr Farage issues a rallying cry to Brexiteers and said: So let's fight back! Let's fight back! We won't stand for it! We won't stand for it!'
